Watch What You Think

October 27, 2010

Watch what You Think

Your words matter. But your thoughts deserve an equal amount of attention. What we say, literally changes our lives, but what we’re THINKING, causes those words to be spoken.

So here’s the challe nge today: watch what you think. Striving to keep your words pure is useless, if your mind is dwelling on trash.

I want to get to the place where I’m not justing saying good things about people… but actually thinking good things about people.

What if our heart’s first response was “That guy is loved by God.” instead of “That guy is an idiot.”?

God, after all, is after your heart. And if our hearts are changed by living in His presence and continually thinking on Him, then our words & actions will follow suit.

It’s great to speak “God words”, but just as important to think “God thoughts”, because the latter gives life to the former.

                                    Proverbs 23:7 “As I think in my heart, so am I.”

 

i read this today on the website of the band Leeland and felt compelled to share it. 

i can only say that this has hit a nerve with me…how often i find myself spewing things out of my mouth without even giving it a second thought…and to think that those things are revealing what was first in my heart.

so, what are you thinking about today?
